Helmet GoPro Mount

Can somebody advise me whatís a good GoPro helmet mount? There is too garbage on amazon and I donít know what works. Willing to do a sticky mount on one of my helmets if that works.

I bought this kit almost 5 years ago and have mounted it to everything from my snowboard helmet, to my dirtbike helmet to my street bike helmet.

Personally, I wouldn't strap a GoPro (or anything for that matter) to my helmet. If you crash, and land on the GoPro, that camera is going to concentrate all that energy to a small surface area.

Does this include comms? I've had this thought about some of the bulkier units.

To me, yes it does include comms. but those are often much smaller and not normally mounted in an impact area. The top of the helmet will hit before the side of the chin bar. And if you get something new enough, there is barely anything sticking out on some of them.

For any of you off road guys wearing an off road helmet, it's super easy to mount a Mobius camera to your lid with a single screw.

Later on I changed the angle of it upwards a bit with a couple bevel washers.

Awesome! One of the older guys beat me to it in our AutoX club. Even made his own team. "Don't Panic Racing"

So you just use the adhesive helmet mount? I have a bunch of those.
